Tape that may prove useful in significant boat leaks

I started a thread on "shoring up" damage to the hull while at sea. I just saw this advert for this tape that looks promising. There is a video on the page I linked to, you might want to watch it:

It might work as advertised, it might not. It never hurts to have a supply of things to use in an emergency. Literally, "Throw the whole shopping cart" at a hole until something works well enough to get to a lift.

If it can be applied underwater and stick, I would buy it.

Rescue tape was my best friend a few years ago on a different boat. We used it to wrap an exhaust riser that was spraying salt water. We were offshore and ran another 100 miles to finish the trip with it taped up. I use to keep 2 rolls on board, now I have alot more.
